2000 The Ian Anderson Group of Companies. More By Ian Anderson.
A new version of Last. Overview (current section).
An Ian Anderson solo album can, as far as I am concerned, never be compared with a Jethro Tull album. The only similarities is the flute sound and the vocals. But I would certainly not put it up there with Jethro Tull's music. But this is a decent Folk Pop album in it's own right.
Produced by Ian Anderson. This sparkling wine is all but empty Too late for trains and no taxis I know the feeling.
Finally the album fans have always demanded of Anderson - and he delivers with aplomb, wit, finesse, and endless inventiveness. It's a wonder Birds hasn't become a classic among Tullites, since it easily surpasses Tull's outings from the nineties onwards. While it may not have the flying sparks of "The Witch's Promise" or the cheeky melodies of "LIfe's A Long Song", this acoustic dish satisfies more with each listening.
